We are more than halfway through the first month of 2021, and we probably want to keep the motivation up to help us achieve our goals.

Statistically 85-90% of us are already slipping away from our goals and either focusing on something else or getting distracted.


I'm not going to give you a hyped motivational talk, but what I will say is use your common sense and stop letting bad habits hijack your brain.

Think about what habits affect you on daily basis such as:

  • Overly using social media like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok or Clubhouse
  • Talking way too much on the phone for hours
  • Watching Netflix just to finish the whole series let alone the season!

I agree life doesn't have to be serious all the time but you should take it seriously.

Whether you agree or not we are running out of time every single day...

...so to help you improve your productivity in a heavily distracted world I have put together this article on how be more productive during lockdown.

Hopefully I can make a contribution to helping you stay on track and not become a statistic.


“Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.”

Money: A User’s Guide Paperback - Laura Whateley

I remember looking for a book to help me learn about how to better manage my finances, here in the UK, and I came across this book.

Straight away it grabbed my attention because the cover looked like a Monzo card!

Laura Whateley clearly and elegantly breaks down personal finances in a way I haven't seen before in a book, specific for those living in the UK.

She covers it all from:

  • Budgeting
  • Investing
  • Pensions
  • Mortgages
  • Savings and many more!

If you want to understand the fundamentals required to better manage your finances, in detail but in layman's terms, then getting this book is a MUST. You can get a copy of the book via the link below.
